Drain and rinse the egg­plant and toss into a large mix­ing bowl. Add in the toma with olive oil and sea­son with salt, and pep­per, stir to coat. Trans­fer the veg­eta­bles to an oven­proof pan lined with tin foil. Roast the veg­eta­bles in the oven for 20 fork ten­der. Stir or flip the veg­eta­bles about 10 – 15 min­utes into the roast­ing process to avoid stick­ing to the pan. Re­move the pan from the oven and set aside. 4. Mean­while, rinse the farro with wa­ter and drain in a colan­der over the sink. Add the liq­uid to boil over medium high heat, and then turn down the heat to a low sim­mer to avoid spilling over. Sim­mer the farro for 20 min­utes with the lid to the pot cocked to one side to let out steam. Turn off the heat but leave the pot on the stove­top and close the lid. Steam in the pot for an­other 5 min­utes or un­til the farro is soft but slightly chewy in the cen­tre. Re­move the lid and fluff with a fork. 5. When ready to assem­ble the dish, com­bine the cooked farro with the veg­eta­bles in a large serv­ing dish and gen­tly toss to mix. Whisk to­gether the olive oil with the salad. Toss to coat and sea­son with salt and pep­per to taste. Gar­nish with fresh warm
